Performance data quoted represents past performance; past performance does not guarantee future results.

Current performance of the fund may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Performance data current to the most recent month end may be obtained by clicking here.

30-Day SEC Yield is a standardized yield computed by dividing the net investment income per share earned during the past 30-day period by the share price at the end of the period, expressed as an annual percentage rate. The 30-Day SEC Yield should be regarded as an estimate of the Fund’s rate of recent investment income, and it may not equal the Fund’s actual distribution rate. Distribution Rate reflects the investment income per share during the last 12 months divided by the share price at the end of the period, expressed as an annual percentage rate. It is calculated by annualizing the Fund’s most recent distribution. The annualized dividend yield may not reflect the actual yield an investor would receive. Past yields are no guarantee of future yields.
